The Gouttes d'Or is from a single parcel of 40-50 year old vines from the smallest vineyard site that Jean Michel works with, making it the most limited of his premier crus. This is a strong site and the 2020 is one of the greatest examples of this site ever. One for the cellar and will age gracefully over the next 2 decades or more!

About the wine

Tasting notes

In its youth, it's a bit reductive on the nose but the palate is stunning with a light creaminess on the entry, fine acidity, good weight with a slightly honeyed Meursault-Charmes-like finish. Give this 3-5 years in bottle and you'll have a stonkingly good Meursault in your mitts.

The Grape

Chardonnay

One of the most planted, versatile and popular white varieties in the world. As a stand alone grape, Chardonnay is not the most interesting, nor complex varietal out there...but in the hands of a great winemaker it can be turned into one of the world's greatest pleasures! From the best bubbles of Champagne, to the lean, unoaked and mineral expressions of Chablis and the opulent, oaked and complex whites of Burgundy, Chardonnay is responsible for making some of the greatest expressions of white wine on the planet.
